And now for something completely different

"And now for something completely different", which is from a skit from one on my favs....Monty Python. I started watching them in high school and even saw them live at the opening of  "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" movie in New York City many years ago. They even handed out coconuts, so we could act out the horse hoof sounds. If you have no idea of what I m talking about don't fret, just look at my pretty owl ATC necklace I made from Retro Cafe Art Products, that is different from my usual style.

Yes, it's not my usual girlie style, but I did include some glitter and glass beads for sparkle. I started with the cute retro owl pin image from Retro Cafe Art,  from their collage sheet called Vintage Jewelry 1. I used the interior of their ATC Fancy Frame Style 4 as my base and painted it with layers of blues and silver acrylic paint. I used the RCA Large Optical stencil  with blue paint on top to create the star burst pattern. The owl image went on next. Added some silver paint on the edges and some Ranger Stickles glitter and punched a hole.  I put it the piece on a old beaded necklace I had and put it on Mary Lou to show you!

Hope you will try something completely different this week.
take care, gerri

  3. PS: Had no idea you were a Monty Python fan .. I too am hooked. When I lived in London, saw them many times and then John Cleese played in the West End on a regular basis. Did you see their 40th anniversary documentary series about a year ago? FABULOUS. BUt I digress ... love the piece, it's very fun .. these ATC frames are interesting. xxDonna

    This piece has a distinct Art Deco appearance to it. A fabulous piece of jewellery.

  13. My goodness ... you are prolific! Something new every day! Well done, you, stepping out of your usual style!

    Grew up with Monty Python ... then had four boys who lived the skits for a few years ... we never sat down to dinner without one skit or other coming up! They knew them all, word for word ... often have the Four Yorkshire Men, or the SPAM song, or I'm a Lumberjack ... running around my head! LOL Happy days!
